* In ''ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', it turns out that association with the Nibiru entity inverts this trope by slowly sealing away someone's good side in a frozen extradimensional room. Hence Nibiru is responsible for all the other Complete Monsters in the show.
* Mike from WesternAnimation/TotalDrama has his [[spoiler:[[SplitPersonality hidden alternate personality]], [[TheDreaded Mal]] in "All-Stars"]]

* In TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon of ''PlanescapeTorment'', the BigBad traps your mind inside a magic prison, where the personalities of three of your most powerful prior incarnations -- [[AxeCrazy The Paranoid Incarnation]], [[ManipulativeBastard The Practical Incarnation]], and [[TheAtoner The Good Incarnation]] -- [[AmnesiacDissonance splinter from your mind]] and start interacting with you. Reintegrating with your body is only possible through subduing or uniting all four fragments until [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne only one remains]], and the Practical Incarnation isn't particularly well disposed towards [[GrandTheftMe letting]] ''[[GrandTheftMe you]]'' [[GrandTheftMe be the one to do this]].

* In Creator/OrsonScottCard's ''The Devil in Velvet'', the protagonist, Nicholas, makes a deal with the Devil to return in time to 18th century England to stop a murder most foul by, in essence, leaping INTO and taking over control of the body of his ancient ancestor. But the old boy is still there, trying to get out of the box, and whenever Nicholas is extremely stressed or emotional, Old Nick jumps out, seizes control of his body, and does dastardly things until our hero can regain control.

* Guts from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' - on occasion, when he enters the eponymous UnstoppableRage, we see a hideous black houndlike entity hovering around him, formed from [[spoiler:[[MyMasterRightOrWrong his confused longing to serve Griffith]] even after [[BrokenPedestal Griffith became a literal demon who destroyed everything and everyone he ever cared about]], combined with traces of EvilFeelsGood from the RoaringRampageOfRevenge this betrayal triggered, as well as general apathy towards a world where so many people seem to be evil]]. Certain characters refer to it as the Beast, and it's hinted that his humanity will be lost to it if things keep going as they currently are.

* One of TheHunter duo from ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' is a young girl who is an "Anti-Virus," a biological evolution against TheHeartless monsters that plague mankind. However, this has resulted in a SplitPersonality that merely kills TheHeartless first, and then turns on her partner. The FlashForward at the beginning of the first episode implies that her two halves will become whole... but as a FaceHeelTurn. [[spoiler:In the manga she eventually [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome learns how to control her virus side and use it to her advantage]].]]

** He's not the only one in the cast to have them, given the game's general theme of inner demons. [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Arceuid]] has her "[[MonsterProgenitor father]]" the Crimson Moon, who's considering using her as a vehicle for his resurrection. In KagetsuTohya it's revealed that [[TheHunter Ciel]] has her own evil past self she fears, who [[YourWorstNIghtmare manifests the same way Nanaya does]], and back in the original work, everyone who gets possessed by [[BigBad Roa]] develops him as an EnemyWithin, including [[spoiler:Shiki, giving him two simultaneous enemies within.]]
